Krispie Treat Christmas Trees

Fruity Pebbles cereal lights up these festive Krispie Treat Christmas Trees that are easy and fun to make for the holidays!
Yield 18 treats

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 (16oz) bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 (11oz) box Fruity Pebbles cereal (about 7 cups)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil or shortening, for thinning
  • Red, Green, and or Silver sugar crystals/sprinkles
  • Rolos candy for the tree stumps

Instructions

  1. Grease a 13x9-inch baking dish with extra butter or baking spray. (Alternately line the pan with parchment paper that has been lightly greased.)
  2. In a large non-stick stock pot, melt the butter. Add the marshmallows and stir constantly until melted.
  3. Remove melted marshmallows from heat. Add Fruity Pebbles cereal and stir/fold until the melted marshmallows are evenly distributed amongst the cereal.
  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish. Flatten the cereal with the bottom of a measuring cup that has been buttered, so it doesn't stick, and doesn't burn your hands. Allow to cool completely.
  5. Pull the whole slab of cereal out of the dish. Then cut the cereal in half lengthwise. Then cut off one end at an angle and cut back and forth creating triangles. Place the triangles on parchment or wax paper.
  6. Melt the white chocolate chips with the coconut oil in a bowl in the microwave for short 20 second bursts, stirring in-between each additional 20 seconds, until smooth.
  7. Allow the chocolate to cool slightly, then pour it into a zip-top bag and cut off the corner. Zig-zag the chocolate across each Christmas tree. Immediately sprinkle the white chocolate with colored sprinkles.
  8. Attach the Rolo tree stumps onto the trees with a dab of melted white chocolate. Allow the chocolate to dry. Store the treats on a plate lightly covered with plastic wrap up to 4 days.
